I bought this Vila dress which arrived today, it's gorgeous. Very simple but 'my' colour and perfect for summer in a silky fabric with some sandals next on list Lots of nice Vila stuff on Asos, might give their stuff a try more often.

Show me some tasty links of stuff you've bought recently and love please?

This chambray one looks really nice too.

Love the dress... I got max factor CC cream and love it it's very light but gives good coverage and can use as a foundation for day to day which is amazing as I have bad skin and need really good coverage

Some Latina sandals. So comfy and a steal from TK Maxx at £19.99

Collection 2000 work the colour lip butter. Its a big chunky pencil, gorgeous colours, full of shea butter very long lasting. Dead impressive for £2.49.

That first dress is really lovely - can i ask how tall you are and how long is it on you? I suspect it might be too short for me...

I bought these shoes for a wedding. I don't do heels so this is a happy compromise.
I love them.

I bought these and they are sooo comfy. www.johnlewis.com/dune-jemm-reptile-clog-sandals/p1925184?colour=Natural

Been wearing them with jeans, a denim pencil skirt and white kick flares.

And I think they'll go very nicely with this too www.johnlewis.com/karen-millen-denim-a-line-skirt-indigo/p1951350 which I had delivered today.

Can't remember how to make the above link clickable! Sorry , I've only been here 8 years

But anyway, it's a grey leather jacket and it's very nice

Those Dune sandals are gorgeous WordFactory.

Nutella - I'm 5'6" and a 10 and it's pretty short but not indecent, more than halfway down my thighs grin

Will need some fake tan before I brave it and some warmer weather. It's very thin fabric but doesn't look cheap IMO, it looks like silk. Size up though, I went for M and although it's looser on me than on the model, I think that's better.

You know the section on the Mint Velvet website which is called 'Steal Her Style'? We'll I bought the entire Emilia Fox outfit. Can't wait to wear it! The grey leather jacket, ivory lace top and fifties style patterned skirt.

I don't look anything like Emilia Fox in it, by the way.

Sorry for the massive long link

I have been after this style of bag for years, and was going to buy it for myself for my 40th birthday. But when it came out in midnight blue I couldn't resist, and was slightly paranoid the colour wouldn't be available when I turn 40. Bought it in the Givenchy boutique in Paris.

I love it. I love it. I love it. grin

These boots, I don't normally wear anything with a heel but these are super comfy, and the dip in the front makes them leg lengtheningly flattering.

Coastingit Thu 07-May-15 21:49:57

Ooh I like the Emilia Fox look the jacket is lush.

I can't get the bag link to work dun.

dun1urkin Thu 07-May-15 21:52:46

Boooo
Here's a screenshot.

CapnMurica Thu 07-May-15 21:55:03

God I love Emilia Fox, but isn't that second photo unflattering?! I didn't think it possible!

I like both looks on there though smile

mooth Thu 07-May-15 21:55:50

That Givenchy bag is amazing.

Thanks coastingit I'm thinking the grey leather Emilia Fox jacket will be very wearable, with jeans, dresses, etc.

Strangely reassuring to hear of other people on here indulging their love of clothes.....

CapnMurica Thu 07-May-15 21:56:20

I actually love the shoes with the first outfit.

mooth Thu 07-May-15 21:57:45

And yes, agree capnmurica but I love her wardrobe in general, it's so cool and English, and very grown up...

I got a black cashmere jumper from Tesco, drastically reduced reduced at £12. It's so soft and warm, I love it. I'm sure it's not the best quality cashmere, I doubt I'll be wearing it in 5 years, but it's been great for work. (Just wish I'd bought another colour before they cleared the winter stock out).

dun1urkin Thu 07-May-15 21:59:09

Here it is in real life. Colour is softer than in the other pic.
Did I mention that I love it?

Coastingit Thu 07-May-15 22:00:43

Ohhhh that bag is delicious! It looks almost black in the website pics, a proper midnight blue. Stunning. I'd feel like I was taking a baby or a kitten out, carrying it!
